“Lovely little museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Highlights the fact that a small place like Paros has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Small size ensures that all items get a fair amount of attention especially from children who easily get tired in these places. Loved the sarcophagus displayed outside in the pedestrian area as exhibits that you can come really close to. What a gift for the children of the next door school to have history at their feet.

“Beautiful little museum on Paros”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is a gem, filled with beautiful ancient sculptures and fragments found on Paros. You can see the whole museum in an hour or so. Located near the big Church of the Hundred Doors in the old town of Parikia.

“Definitely worth 2 euro.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Very small museum, but definitely worth it, even just to see the gorgon statue. I haven't seen anything like it before. Charming quiet setting too, yet very accessible.
